{Healthy Summer Recipe} Grilled Mushroom Veggie Burger

I love cooking in the summer! It always means fresher and lighter meals as well as grilled recipes. I have a great indoor grill which I use all year long. I know that I don't use it enough in the winter but I hope to next year. For now I'm excited to share some of our favorite summer recipes with you. I can't wait to cook these again for the family now that it is warmer out as well as create new recipes. What are some of your favorite summer recipes? Share them in the comments below so we can visit yours, too!

Kitchen Notes:

This recipe is really flexible and calls for your creative culinary flair!  For example, if you don’t want the bun, skip it!   You can also add your own touch to the dressing with different spice, juices or vinegars.  Don’t be afraid to substituting different veggies for the salad. We love using avocados as an addition to this salad. Try adding green, yellow, orange or red peppers, cucumbers, jalapeños, asparagus and even green cabbage.

Whatever you do to make it your own, you’ll be sure to enjoy this delicious, easy-to-make recipe for the summer!
